28th October 2023

The annual town celebration that is The Winter Droving: a magical celebration of rural life, food, fun, masquerade, and fire in Penrith.

The Winter Droving is back for it’s 12th year! On the 28th October 2023 (find out moreĀ here), the magical torchlight procession will round off a day of music, masquerade and magical carnivalesque goings on.

There will be food, there will be music, thereĀ will be a parade!

It’s time to get creative with your mask making.

2023 is gearing up to be our biggest year yet (with a little surpise for you soon to be announced). There will be Art, Music and Culture. There will be Street Performers, Stage Performers and Musicians.
